DanceMaster is a music player designed for rehearsal.
When you rehearse, you often need to play part of a piece of music over and over again, and you need to be able to quickly jump to important points in the piece. DanceMaster is optimized to help you easily break down, practice, memorize, and teach choreographies.
Every time you pause the music, DanceMaster returns to the last place you started playing. This makes it easy to practice to a section of the music over and over again.
FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT…
DanceMaster allows you to set cues in the music that you can easily jump to at any time. In addition, you can add a configurable lead-in time to all cues in a choreography. The lead-in time sets the jump point for each cue a little before the actual cue time, giving you time to count in, but keeping your cue marks where they should be.
You can easily change the tempo of the song for a choreography. Tempo adjustment can be turned on and off without losing the selected tempo, which is great for switching between rehearsal and performance tempos.
If you supply the original tempo for a piece of music (either via the "BPM" field in iTunes, or by setting it directly in the app), DanceMaster will show you tempo adjustments and cue lead-ins in beats instead of seconds.
DanceMaster now includes an Apple Watch app that allows you to control the music, jump to defined cues, and even change the tempo without having to go back to your phone. It's perfect for active rehearsals. DanceMaster also works with Control Center and can be controlled with any remote that works with iOS, including the standard iPhone earbud controls and external Bluetooth remotes.
CALL IT FOR ME
To help you memorize a choreography, DanceMaster can speak your cue names during playback, so you don't need to look at the screen or your notes while you rehearse.
If you have any feedback or questions, we'd love to hear from you! You can reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on Twitter at @dancemasterapp.
What's New in Version 2.2
The app now allows you to search the choreography list, and also includes 3D Touch shortcuts on supported devices for quickly accessing recent choreographies.
Everything has been updated for iOS 9 and WatchOS 2. The Watch app now requires WatchOS 2, and has been significantly redesigned to take full advantage of WatchOS 2 features for a more efficient interface. You can now use the digital crown to quickly jump to your pre-defined cues on the main screen.
This version also addresses a bug that occasionally caused crashes on devices running iOS 9.
DanceMaster is a Awesome app!!!
I'm a Dance Instructor and Studio owner and DanceMaster is by far my favorite music app for Choreographers. This app is great for Dance, Cheer and Pom Pom choreography. This is by far my favorite app in the App Store.
